Retailers Rethink Inventory Strategies
Home Depot tells its stores, 'Get comfortable with days of inventory, not weeks'

Home Depot Inc. is bringing a new philosophy to its cavernous stores: Less is more. Instead of filling its warehouse-style racks to the ceiling with Makita drills, rolls of Owens Corning insulation and cans of Rust-Oleum paint, Home Depot wants fewer items on its shelves and it wants them to be within customers' reach.

"Get comfortable with days of inventory, not weeks," Tom Shortt, Home Depot's senior vice president of supply chain, says is the message going out to stores. The retailer is targeting sales growth of nearly 15% by 2018, but wants to keep inventory levels flat or slightly down.

It is a shift happening across the retail sector as companies try to figure out ways to profitably serve the growing needs of online shoppers while making their network of stores less of a financial burden. Chains must predict whether demand will come from the internet or a store visit, and whether they'll ship online orders from a distribution center or a store. Every move of inventory is an added cost that eats away at already thin margins.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. and Target Corp. are cutting back on the number of packs of diapers, boxes of cereal, and bottles of laundry detergent in their backrooms, and moving the product to shelves faster. Wal-Mart has also widened aisles to further reduce the amount of goods on its shelves, while Target has moved bulky items such as patio furniture into centralized distribution locations instead of keeping them in stores. Kohl's Corp. is aiming to lower inventory by 10% by the end of next year, after seeing it swell 15% over the past five years as the department-store chain tried to become a bigger online player. wsj.com

Smaller chains protest stricter food stamp regulations
The U.S. Department of Agriculture is promoting stricter rules for retailers accepting benefits from the country's $74 billion Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, the Wall Street Journal reports. In one of the biggest changes in the program's 52 years, the agency is pushing to require a broader nutritional offering from retailers that includes more proteins and vegetables and fewer hot meals. Wal-Mart Stores' wide-ranging grocery offerings likely already comply, but such rules could hit smaller retailers like convenient stores. Retailers that together have some 195,000 such smaller stores would be required to supplement their inventory with 168 items that are generally less profitable and more prone to issues like spoilage, according to the report. retaildive.com

Risk Mitigation Should Be Part of a Healthy Supply Chain
Supply chain risk comes from a myriad sources and can be very hard, if not impossible, to predict. Risks run the gamut - from weather extremes, power outages, theft, counterfeiting, product spoilage, global crises, cargo lost at sea, truck or rail accidents, etc. The impacts can be costly - there's an estimated $50 billion annual financial impact on cargo losses alone. sdcexec.com

Judge Denies $1.75M Deal In Coach Inc. Security Check Suit
A California federal judge has rejected a proposed $1.75 million settlement in a putative class action accusing Coach Inc. of not compensating sales associates for the time they spent getting their bags checked before breaks and after shifts, according to a filing made public Monday.

In a June 22 minute entry, U.S. District Judge James Donato said he was concerned about the fairness and reasonableness of the proposed deal because it doesn't sufficiently state the full potential recovery value available to the putative class, the actual recovery that would be awarded and the reason for the disparity between those amounts.

The luxury retailer and its employees recently told the court that they had resolved the suit over the time spent on security checks in a compromise that both parties agreed was fair and reasonable. However, the proposed deal largely underwhelmed the class's original request of $7.25 million. law360.com

Free App Fights Skimming at the Pump
Skimming continues to be a top concern for fuel retailers, and NACS has the tools gas station operators need to combat thieves looking to steal credit and debit card information at the pump. Recently, NACS (in conjunction with Conexxus) and The Pinnacle Corporation launched a new mobile solution, the SkimDefend app, that works alongside tamper-evident NACS WeCare decals.

Together, the decals and app help retailers identify potential security breaches when fuel dispensers or other unattended PIN-entry devices are opened to install skimming mechanisms. With the SkimDefend app, store operators scan the code at each pump location where a NACS WeCare decal is applied, or enter label numbers manually. Decal usage could also help protect other vulnerable locations, such as ATMs, car wash controllers, network cabinets and PCs.

Convenience store operators can download the SkimDefend app free of charge for Apple and Android mobile devices, and the NACS WeCare decals can be purchased at nacsonline.com.  nacsonline.com

Kentucky Dept. of Agriculture keeping an eye out for skimmers
Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles announced Monday the Kentucky Department of Agriculture is on the lookout for evidence of skimming to protect Kentucky consumers and businesses. According to a KDA release, the department is charged with the task of inspecting motor fuel pumps in every retail establishment in the Commonwealth once a year. Its inspectors test pumps to ensure that the amount of fuel dispensed matches the amount shown on the pump, and check to make sure pumps are in proper working order. richmondregister.com

Report: TJX Cos. among U.S. retailers to be impacted the most by Brexit vote
The recent vote by the United Kingdom to leave the European Union will have the biggest retail impact on companies that have high U.K. exposure, including U.S. off-price giant TJX Cos., MarketWatch reported. Swedish fast-fashion giant H&M is also among the retailers to be most impacted. The United Kingdom is the company's third largest market, behind Germany and the United States.

The MarketWatch report also cites a note by analysts at Cowen & Co., who believe that a stronger U.S. dollar, a byproduct of the vote, will further weaken the purchasing power of foreign tourists in the United States. Particularly vulnerable is the Saks Fifth Avenue flagship in New York City (which is owned by Hudson's Bay), Macy's and Tiffany & Co. retailingtoday.com

LP Meet IT ... and HR
Data security measures to take when employees leave the company

Charles Choe, product marketing manager for Guidance Software, agreed. He said while data loss prevention (DLP) technologies focus on data-in-motion, "they are often turned off due to the high rate of false positives that effectively hinder effective business operations."

So, he said, it is important for HR to notify IT when employees are leaving, even when the separation is planned and amicable, so the activities of those employees can be more closely monitored.

Dana Simberkoff, chief compliance and risk officer at AvePoint, said HR and IT should be "joint partners" both in training and supervision of employees - especially those who are transitioning out of an organization. At a minimum, she said, organizations should enforce policies that require when employees are leaving that, "the data they are removing is reviewed and approved before they go, and their access to systems with customer data on them is limited and supervised." csoonline.com

Kroger Sues Visa Over Debit Card Signature Requirement
- Follows similar suits by Wal-Mart and Home Depot

The Kroger Co. launched a suit Monday in Ohio federal court accusing Visa Inc. of hitting it with $7 million in fines, and threatening to raise fees and block the grocery chain from accepting Visa debit cards altogether amid a battle over the safety of a signature verification system for payment cards.

Echoing complaints lodged in recent suits by other merchants including The Home Depot Inc. and Wal-Mart Stores Inc., Kroger accused Visa of pushing the grocery chain to use chip-and-signature verification for payments, instead of the chip-and-PIN system the retailers say is more fraud-resistant.

Kroger claims that after it rolled out 54,000 chip-enabled point-of-sale terminals starting late last year, Visa - "in a sudden and drastic change of direction seemingly motivated by an intention to restrain competition" - told Kroger that the terminals didn't comply with its rules. law360.com

Malware spawns botnet in 25,000 connected CCTV cameras
Could a globally connected network of CCTVs become infected with a strain of malware that results in a botnet swarming across as many as 25,000 malware-riddled CCTV cameras? American website security and web application firewall (WAF) specialist Sucuri thinks that this scenario is plausible because it has already happened. The Delaware-headquartered firm said it found the CCTV botnet during analysis it carried out in relation to an online assault against a 'bricks & mortar' jewelry store. scmagazine.com

Report: Microsoft Office 365 hit with massive Cerber ransomware attack
Millions of Microsoft Office 365 users were potentially exposed to a massive zero-day Cerber ransomware attack last week that not only included a ransom note, but an audio warning informing victims that their files were encrypted. Steven Toole, a researcher for the cloud-security firm Avanan, blogged that his company saw the first attack roll in at 6:44 a.m. on June 22 and that at least 57 percent of all Office 365 customers received at least one phishing attempt that contained the infected attachment. While Avanan did not supply a specific number of those possibly hit, Microsoft reported in its first quarter 2016 earnings report that there are 18.2 million Office 365 subscribers. scmagazine.com



We will be covering various sections of the 2016 National Retail Security Survey, developed by Dr. Richard Hollinger of the Univ. of Florida, in partnership with the National Retail Federation.

The D&D Daily's 2016 NRSS Review
 Part 1: Introduction and Key Findings

The 2016 National Retail Security Survey was jointly conducted by Dr. Richard Hollinger of the University of Florida and the National Retail Federation. The study develops and analyzes retail loss prevention benchmarks to examine inventory shrinkage, LP staffing and budgeting, employee integrity screening, LP training programs, the impact of dishonest employees, and the costs of external retail crime. A total of 80 retailers participated in the survey.


Key findings in the 2016 NRSS Survey include:
The impact of shrinkage on the retail industry continues to be sizable. With an average shrink rate of 1.38%, this cost the U.S. economy $45.2 billion in 2015. 
48.1% of retailers reported increases in overall shrink.
 LP budgets remain flat as a percentage of sales.
 Most retailers continue to rely on LP professionals to apprehend shoplifters.
 For the second consecutive year, shoplifting has surpassed employee theft as greatest cause of inventory shrink.
The average loss was $377 per shoplifting incident, up nearly $60 from 2014. 
The average loss from dishonest employee cases dropped from $1,546.83 to $1,233.77 
Many of the hiring practices retailers use to deter honest employees dropped. 
• Technology is increasing in use as a shoplifting deterrent, but more advanced methods (e.g. facial recognition) are not catching on. 
Methods of increasing LP awareness are changing. Newsletters, periodic programs and lectures increased while training videos and discussions during new hire orientations decreased. 
When it comes to shoplifting deterrents, the more visible, the better. The use of uniformed guards is up while the use of plainclothes detectives is down.
• Robberies are a growing expense for retailers, costing an average of $8,170.17.

An Ecosystem for Good - Battling the Lifecycle of Fraud
Today's cybercriminal has an advanced skill set that is backed by burgeoning technology and extensive resources. Some criminal outfits mirror corporate America, complete with a well-trained technical staff, a detailed organizational structure and employee best practices. The level of sophistication is mind blowing, and the result is a well-coordinated and highly intelligent ecosystem of fraud.

Unfortunately, it's almost impossible for merchants to keep pace. Combating the latest fraud trends and staying current on technological advances is extremely difficult, not to mention costly. Merchants are left scrambling, fighting in an arena where they are over matched and underfunded.

When battling ecommerce fraud, it is important to fight fire with fire. The most effective fraud solution can stand up to the most sophisticated criminal activity by addressing the full lifecycle of fraud and casting a web of well-coordinated intelligence.

The solution combines advanced technology with human ingenuity and fosters seamless communication throughout the offering. This approach helps to establish its own ecosystem of people, processes, and technology. An ecosystem for good. Let's take a walk through the lifecycle of fraud and show how a comprehensive solution interacts every step of the way. Read more here: multichannelmerchant.com

Brexit's $44B Hit On eCommerce Sales
The Brexit toll could extend well beyond the borders and currency and political issues dominating markets at present. Add eCommerce to the mix of uncertainty and possibly, casualties.

As estimated by Scurri, which is the Irish fulfillment platform based in the cloud, the United Kingdom could lose as much as 33.4 billion (pounds), which translates to $44 billion in lost eCommerce sales. The Post and Parcel noted on its site Monday that last year 455 billion (pounds) was spent by Europeans consumers online on eCommerce sites, and 157 billion (pounds) of that was from the U.K. alone. pymnts.com

Shootings and Deaths

Munster, IN: Woman shot while exiting Jewel-Osco
A northwest Indiana woman was wounded when she got caught in the crossfire of a shootout Sunday night in a Jewel-Osco grocery store parking lot in Munster, Ind. The woman, who is in her 20s, was an innocent victim, police said. She is expected to be OK. No arrests have been made. Police said they believe the shooting was gang related and don't believe the suspects live in Munster. The grocery store, located in the 700-block of Ridge Road, is across the street from Saint Thomas More Catholic Church, which held its annual carnival Sunday night. Two groups who left carnival at about 10 p.m. got into a fight, which escalated into gunfire, police said. "I don't know if these two groups didn't like each other or if something was said," said Munster police Lt. Edward Strbjak.

Strbjak said the woman who was shot was leaving the grocery store when she was shot. She had went back into the store's lobby vestibule when she heard the gunfire, but it wasn't enough. She was struck by a bullet that tore through the grocery store's window. "She was hit - apparently grazed in the back of the head," Strbjak said. abc7chicago.com

Memphis, TN: Shots fired outside Walmart store during armored car heist
A suspect is still on the run after robbing an armored truck this afternoon in front of a Walmart Neighborhood Market. The incident happened around 1 p.m. Monday at the Walmart located in the 6000 block of East Shelby Drive. Moments after it happened, the area was swarming with police and FBI agents. They told WREG's Shay Arthur it was around the lunch hour when a man robbed the armored truck parking in front of the store at gunpoint.

Gregory Nelson said he watched a gunfight in the parking lot. "I see a guy put a gun to the armored car driver's head, snatch a money bag from him. Takes off running in the opposite direction. Armored guard shoots at him, he's shooting back." Nelson said the suspect may have been shot in the leg. The guard thankfully was not injured, but was shaken up. The suspect took off in a black Dodge Avenger with an "undisclosed amount of cash" and is still at large at this time. wreg.com

Ten robbery suspects were arrested in Paris on Monday over armed raids in recent months on luxury stores in the French capital, a police official said.
